Otis Technology’s New EarShield Ranger Earmuff Lineup

When it comes to personal protection items, having a lot of versatility and options to choose from is always great. While the first thing that may come to mind when you hear the name Otis Technology is firearms cleaning products, Otis has now joined the ear protection industry with three brand new pairs of hearing protection in their new EarShield Ranger lineup. These new hearing protection units look to be decently constructed with a good set of features for some of the more advanced models and are sold at what appears to be competitive pricing.

Each of the three new models in the EarSheild lineup will protect your ears with a minimum noise reduction rating (NRR) of -22dB. The first style is your standard passive earmuff featuring slim low-profile muffs, an adjustable headband, soft replaceable earcups, and a compact foldable design. The standard passive EarShield Ranger earmuffs are sold for a price of $24.99.

Passive Ear Muffs

Otis is also fielding two electronic versions of the EarShield Rangers with the first of the two being the Ranger Electronic Pro Earmuff. These electronic earmuffs carry a -23dB rating, feature an omnidirectional microphone with a fast attack time of 0.5 milliseconds, and kick in when any sound over 82dB is detected. The Electronic Pro EarShield Rangers also feature a 5x amplification for quieter noises like speech so that you can remain aware no matter what the shooting situation is. Finally, there are accommodations for use with external devices with the included aux jack and cord. This version of the Rangers runs off of two AA batteries and has an automatic 4-hour auto shut-off feature to preserve battery life. The Ranger Electronic Pro’s will sell for a price of $69.99 which is comparable to other similar models of electronic hearing protection already on the market.

Finally, we come to the Bluetooth-enabled version of the EarShield Rangers. These carry the lowest passive NRR with a -22dB rating. While the Bluetooth Rangers share most of the same features as the electronic earmuffs, this version will allow you to make calls, receive calls or listen to music while you’re using them making them suitable for work around power tools or lawn equipment. The Bluetooth version will be sold for a price of $79.99 and will still run off of two AA batteries. What are your guys’ thoughts on this new lineup of ear protection?

    Honest question.
    Does anyone make NON-active noise suppression electronic earmuffs anymore? i.e. “old school” electronic
    I find the constant switching on/off distracting.

      @Framer14 I don't know about these.....but with my Walkers all you have to do is shut off the amplifier, which is the way I like to run them unless I'm at a controlled range....
